Even Celebrities Had To Live Through Some Brutally Awkward Teen Years.

If you”re among the fortunate few in the world who is able to look back on their teen years without immediately cringing and turning reddish, congratulations. (I don”t like you.) You will need to possess some serious superpowers that are genetic. However, for the remainder of us, life before maturity was rough. Real rough.

Acne, baby fat that is lingering, and horrible ensemble selections are just a small number of many matters harassing our small ugly duckling selves. But all of US turn into swans, less or more. And it”s comforting to realize that even the prettiest of swans (AKA stars) had to undergo the awkward stage, also.

Thank goodness they all grew into their appearances. Or at least found a physician that is great.
